Texas Eliminates Arizona State From CWS, 4-3
June 19, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Connor Rowe hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, moments after Cameron Rupp tied it with a homer of his own as Texas came from behind to beat Arizona State 4-3 in the College World Series on Friday night.
Rowe sent a shot into the left-field seats, then sprinted around the bases with his helmet raised in his right hand as his celebrating teammates waited at home plate to greet him.
Two batters earlier, Rupp homered over the 22-foot wall in straightaway center field to tie it.
Texas advanced to the CWS best-of-three finals starting Monday against LSU.
